A cruise ship that was headed to the Bahamas had to turn back when a child fell aboard the ship. The young child fell on the shop and the Royal Caribbean had to turn back to port based in central Florida.

The Associated Press reported that the 14-month-old boy from India fell on Friday on the Royal Caribbean ship, the Monarch of the Seas. The ship had left on Thursday from Port Canaveral.

The boy had received treatment on board but needed to be hospitalized so the ship returned to Florida where the boy was taken to the hospital.

The ship had a three-night itinerary that included going to Nassau Bahamas and CocoCay.

There have been a lot of incidences on cruise ships where passengers get hurt or go missing. In Septembera  a 21-year-old woman from Barlett, Tennessee was aboard a Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas ship just 47 miles east of Fort Lauderdale when she reportedly fell off the ship and into the ocean Sunday.

The coast guard is searching the Atlantic Ocean for her but no trace of the woman has been found. Crew members searched the cruise ship on Sunday when she was thought missing but no one could find her. At that point, the captain alerted search and rescue officials in Miami to start the search.

Another passenger on Allure of the Seas, reportedly saw the young woman fall off the ship at around 9:25 p.m. according to the Sun Sentinel in Florida.

When the ships camera footage was viewed later on, it confirmed that the woman had gone into the water.
